McLaren unveils extreme Senna GTR

McLaren unveils extreme Senna GTR

"McLaren?" Regardless of the scripture, we were especially covetous of the scintillatingly hardcore McLaren Senna, which made its debut late a year ago, especially since all 500 units of the limited production run were sold out before we were finished scrounging around our couch cushions for change. It wasn't any regular run-of-the-mill production vehicle from the British automaker, but rather was limited to only 500 units - all of which are sold out - with the intention of setting fast lap times. Say olá to the McLaren Senna GTR.

Given McLaren is building 500 regular Sennas, this means the new auto is likely to appeal to both collectors and well-healed hardcore circuit fiends.We imagine the order book is over-subscribed already. Pirelli slicks ensure the race vehicle is as sticky as it needs to be to hang it all out in the corners and when the 2,641-pound Senna GTR is developing all the downforce it can muster, it almost doubles its "weight" for ultimate track performance. For the time being, it remains a concept vehicle.

Germany and EU hit back at Donald Trump's trade war threat
Trump tweeted earlier yesterday that "Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum will only come off if new & fair NAFTA agreement is signed". Lidington also says Britain's experience shows that protectionism doesn't work. "The trade war hurts them".


The enormous rear diffuser, towering spoiler, and snow-plow-like front splitter aren't just there for show, either. Oh, the standard window has been replaced with a polycarbonate one as well, because race vehicle.

"The McLaren Senna was designed from the outset with the full spectrum of road and track requirements in mind, so developing a GTR version is within the scope of the original project", said McLaren Automotive Design Engineering Director, Dan Parry-Williams. The firm certainly expects the customer base to be made up of broadly the same people - although you won't actually need to own a road-legal Senna to buy the GTR. Also, there's the large active rear wing which further adds downforce. This is a track-only proposition, capable of making more than 1000kg of downforce.

Jennifer Garner Memes Her Own Oscars Realization Moment
Pretty much as soon as the footage hit our screens she was a meme , with many predicting what on earth she was thinking about. Her eyes then widen and her mouth slightly parts, like she just saw Casper the ghost or something.


For now, McLaren has yet to reveal the exact details of the 4.0-liter biturbo V8.

Only 75 examples of the GTR will be produced, each priced at £1 million.

Broadcom dangles 5G promise to save Qualcomm deal
In terms of products, " Qualcomm now holds active sole source classified prime contracts" with the Department of Defense, it said. The US Treasury Department is anxious that Broadcom's plan to buy Qualcomm could pose a national security threat.
